PREFACE TO 1927-28 EDITION. 

WE have again pleasure in producing another issue 
of our hardy Annual. Noth withstanding the high 
prices prevalent (which we do not proportionately follow), 
we have maintained the four distinct departments of this 
publication, and are pleased they are appreciated. 

Rothesay is, of course, the most prosperous. We would 
like to see its spirit of enterprise spreading among the 
rural districts. They have each and all something to be 
proud of. These cannot be properly appreciated until bet- 
ter known. 

This Directory is not only at hand for reference at all 
times throughout the whole county, but it is also ready for 
reference in the public libraries of Scotland, England, Ire- 
land and Wales, and also in numerous business houses and 
agencies in busy centres ; and we are particularly anxious 
that nothing of benefit to Buteshire is omitted, but that 
all interests have a good show, and everything brought 
thoroughly up to date. 

The Public Libraries as a rule do not subscribe to 
other than the few large National Directories. The more 
numerous and detailed District Directories would cost too 
much. For years we have sent, complimentarily, copies of 
ours — which are much appreciated ; and we are prepared 
to increase this mumber by forwarding other free copies 
to any Libraries be be named by customers giving orders 
to the value of £1. 

As our Advertising friends appreciate the continued 
distribution of their announcements facing the ordinary 
reading matter, we, with prompt receipt of orders, will 
keep permanent this decided benefit. 

Those who wish Lists of Householders (arranged in 
Streets and Wards) can get that in the Official Voters' Roll 
— in whole or in parts. 

It will be noticed that our Accident Assurance coupon 
is increased from £100 to £250. 

Our best thanks are again accorded to those who have 
in any way helped us in this compilation. It takes long 
and caieful vigilance to ascertain and give effect to the 
continual changes. 

HIGOIE & CO., Printers and Publishers 
Rothesay, July, 1927. 

P,S.— Will the many persons who consult the Bute County Directory 
in the Libraries, Reading Rooms, Banks, Offices, Shops, etc. , through- 
out the County and beyond it, free of charge, please remember that they 
are indebted for the privilege to our Subscribers and Advertisers.

s the same. The book, which runs into 144 pp., should be extremely useful and con- 
venient for the residents of the county of islands, as well as to visitors, especially those 
who have business dealings with the inhabitants.— Largs and Millport News 

This useful publication is again to hand. The publishers have been so enter 
prising as regards its compilation that the Directory is now an absolute necessity to 
business people who have dealings with the picturesque County of Bute. It should be 
noted that the Directory also contains a useful almanac. — Ardrossan Herald,

LONG LIVE THE BUTE DIRECTORY 

The Opinions of the Press and the Acknowledgments of Libraries 

art as complimentary as ever. The " Glasgow Evening News " makes the following 
appreciation of " Local Colour. — The compilers of the Bute County Directory 
have an ingenious method of making up the local colour and stimulating local pride 
instead of filling up the Calendar with the stock anniversaries, they have put against 
each date a local happening." Thus — [Two events mentioned]. " It is certainly an 
idea that makes for ' atmosphere. ' "

The Belensburgh and Gareloch Times says this useful hand-book is brimful of 
information regarding the County of Bute. The public officials, lists of householders 
and business people in this popular health resort will be most serviceable. Notwith- 
standing the greatly increased cost of production, the price of two shillings has 
been maintained. 



COUNTY OF BUTE. 

THE COUNTY OF BUTE comprises the seven islands in the Firth of Clyde, viz. 
— Bute, the most populous; Arban, the largest ; the Great and Little 
Cumbraes, off the Ayrsnire Coast; Holy Isle and Pladda, off Arran; and Inch- 
marnook, off Bute. 

The total Area of the County (land and water, exclusive of tidal water) is 
L39,658 acres, of which 53,510 are mountain and heath lands used for grazing. 3,806 
acres are under plantations, and 794 are covered with water There are 25,981 acres 
under all kinds of crops, bare fallow and grass, which is a gradual inroad on the 
mountain heath and hitherto uncultivated land. 

The principal Industries are agriculture, horticulture, and fishing The islands 
possess great and varied natural attractions, and are in the forefront as holiday resorts. 

The Population of the County (including its Burghs of Rothicsay and 
Millport) in 1801 was 11,791 ; 1831, 14,151; 1861, 16,331; 1881, 17,657. In 
1891 it was 18,248 (8,057 males and 10,197 females) ; and in 1901, 18,786 (8,412 
males and 10,374 females) — being an increase of 255 in the ten years — 2-1 per cent 
There were 4,270 inhabited houses in the islands. 
For 1911, the figures were as follows :— 

Males. Females. 
Arran - - - 2,169 2,402 

Bute (including Rothesay) 5,081 6,781 

Cumbrae - 704 992 

*The increased total issued in the Quarterly Return of the Registrar- 
General compared with the returns lodged with the Sheriff-Clerk, 
may be accounted for by the enumeration of the shipping, 
the decreases since 1901 are as follows : Arran, 209; Bute, 330 ; Cumbrae, 62— €01. 
The population at the postponed 1921 census [taken in June instead of April] for the 
county, was 33,711 (13,880 males and 19,831 females)— being an increase of 15,525 
over 1911.

Parish of North Bute. 

r T , HIS is the northern portion of the island of Bute. Port-Bannatyne, its principal 
-*- village, is two and a-half miles from Rothesay, with which it is connected by tram- 
way. Karnes Castle, in the vicinity, is said to be the oldest inhabited castle in the 
country, and was the ancient seat of the Bannatynes. The village was named after 
that family — two brothers of whom (John and Gilbert) — received a charter from King 
Robert the Bruce, for services rendered at Bannockburn. 

At the 1921 census, (taken in June instead of April) the parish contained 1201 
males and 1529 females— total, 2730.

BOOK-KEEPING. 



MR HIGGIE'S CLASSES FOR PRACTICAL INSTRUC 
TION are conducted during the two Winter Quarters — 
October till December and January till March. 

PRIVATE TUITION BY ARRANGEMENT. 
Shorthand continues to be taught with a view to its subsequent useful- 
ness in Business and Professionally. 

In Typewriting" special attention is devoted to Punctuation and Capital- 
isation — a thorough knowledge of which is absolutely necessary in Practical Printing 
and cannot longer be neglected by those aspiring to be First-Class Typists. 

Esperanto. — This wonderful International Language is already used for 
Business and Pleasure iD all parts of the world. Mr Higgie is in touch with import- 
ant regions all over the world, and regularly corresponds with persons everywhere 
— notwithstanding their different national languages. 

This auxiliary language anticipates the happy time when there will be ' ' Peace 
on earth and good will to men," which is coming yet in spite of the present times of 
" great tribulation "— caused by covetousness, selfishness, greed, and wanton hindranee 
to peaceful re-construction. The efficacy of the International language in tracing miss- 
ing friends and making new ones has been and is being repeatedly evidenced. 

Anticipating the boom in International Trading after the World War, experi- 
ments by means of inter-correspondence in Esperanto are being made by business firms 
throughout the world with eminently satisfactory results. It is not the tyrants but the 
"meek who shall inherit the earth." The blatant, self-righteous and arrogant despots 
were beaten, but Righteousness is yet to be exalted, and frightfulness loathed. The 
longed-for League of Nations is evolving, when harmony and good-will shall yet reign 
in spite of'all present discord and opposition — but not without many sacrifies, much 
service and suffering. Prosperity will not come through desiring something for no - 
thing, but through universal patient industry for the public good. 

BOOk-Keeping 1 . — Instruction given in Book-Keeping and other Up-to- 
Date Business Methods. Advertisement Writing is a Present Day Enviable Pro- 
fession, and the ground-work and minutiae have long been familiar to Mr Higgie, a 
practical Printer. 

Messrs HIGGIE & COY.'S ESPERANTO PUBLICATIONS 
are known, read and appreciated throughout the whole civilised world. Many of the 
contributions are written by up-to-date foreigners.

The International Language 

ESPERANTO 

— is an attempt to save the greatest amount of labour and open the 
widest fields of thought and action to the greatest number. 

INTERNATIONAL CONGRESSES. 

The First International Congress was held at Boulogne-sur-Mer, 1905, 

When the British and Foreign Esperantists met for the first time and wondered if they 
conld understand each other's speech as they had done their writing. To their mut- 
ual delight they found that they were no ionger foreigners but gealilandanoj 
(male ahd female inhabitants of other lands). If they did not sing "Auld Langsyne " 
thus early, they all felt that they were brethren "happy to meet, sorry, to part," 
and all looked forward to the pleasure of meeting again. 

The Second ivas held at Geneva, in August, 1906, 

And the translated introductory pages of BONNIE SCOTLAND'S RESORTS_ had 
here the honour of being the first national guide-book printed in the international 
language, since known throughout the World as Belega Sk.Otlando. 

The Third was held at Cambridge, August, 1907, 

When we printed and published a class book of typical Scottish Seenery* and 

about seventy ladies and gentlemen (representingeightnationalities)took abrief trip 
to Scotland, where they visited three places, viz., Edinburgh, Glasgow and Rothesay 
They had a most pleasant and memorable holiday. By means of the Esperanto 
letters they sang "Auld Langsyne " as Scotsmen sing it, and the words were ringing 
in their ears long after they arrived home. 

The Eleventh ivas to have been held at Edinburgh, in 1915, but 

The E'eventh Tuta Mondo Esperanto Kongreso absorbed the TutaPacifica Congress, at 
San Francisco, to commemorate the Opening of the Panama Canal. 

The Twelfth was held at the Hague, Holland, 1920. 
fj ie Thirteenth at Prague, Czechoslovakia, August, 1921, 
Fhe Fourteenth at Helsingfors, Finnland, August, 1922, 
The Fifteenth at Number g, Bavaria, August, 1923, 
The Sixteenth at Vienna, Austria, August, 1924, 
Tfa Seventeenth at Geneva, August. 1925, and 

The Eighteenth at Edinburgh, in July-August, 1926, 

where the complete translation of the Bible in Esperanto was dedicated. 

The Nineteenth at Danzic, July-August, 1927. 

NATIONAL CONGRESSES 
were continuous during the Great War. Stirling and Linlithgow 
were early in evidence as the rendezvous of Scottish Esperantists. 

The British Esperanto Association, although it only passed its 
18th Annual Congress at Whitsunday, 1927, is a larger and more 
vigorous institution than the Scottish, which held its 22nd an- 
nual meeting in June, this year at Ayr. 

On the Continent and elsewhere the movement is much more 
advanced than here : the necessity is more apparent. 

At the Esperanto Congress at Cheltenham, in 1927, the British Esperanto Associa- 
tion, at the unanimous recommendation of the Executive Committee, elected Sinjoro 
George Higgie, Rothesay, to Honorary Fellowship of the Association, for his long 
and devoted pioneer work done for the cause.

The Isle of Arran. 

THIS island, the largest in the group, is famous for the grandeur of its scenery and 
the variety of its geological deposits. The island is 36 miles in length, 
■20 in breadth, and is divided into two parishes — Kilbride on the east, and Kilmory 
on the west. The late King Edward and Queen Alexandra spent a very pleasant 
holiday in the island after their postponed Coronation in August, 1902, and witnessed 
some very interesting sheep dog trials — which lengthened their stay

CHARM of the HEATHER 

A SPRIG of SCOTS HEATHER is as lightly thought of at 
l\- hame as a drink of cold water (of which there is more than 
enough to spare), but it is an inspiration and a valued reminder 
of the pleasantest of memories to Scots and their friends abroad. 

The exchange of national floral emblems will yet become ex- 
ceedingly popular among those who work for human brotherhood. 
We produced Victory Commemoration Bookmarks — in con- 
nection with the Armistice, the Signing of Peace and the succeed- 
ing Joy Day Celebrations, — which were considered very appro- 
priate. 

Remember Friends Abroad. 

While enjoying holidays remember to gather sprigs to send to 
friends abroad, or in response to appeals you will see in leading 
Scottish weekly newspapers. 

We have for years sent boxesfull of heather to friends and so- 
cieties abroad. We frequently respond to newspaper appeals, and 
the following is a sample of the acknowledgments received :, — 

East London, C. P., So. Africa, 18th Dec. 
Mr George Higgle, 22 Bridge St., Rothesay, Scotland. 

On behalf of the East Landon Caledonian Society I wish to thank you for being 
so kind in responding to my appeal for heather, which was sold on our Patron Saint's 
Day, and realised the very handsome sum of £265 5/11, and has been forwarded to 
the fund for disabled Sailors and Soldiers The heather was received in first-class 
condition, and was much prized — Yours faithfully, James Forbes, 

Convener of Heather Committee. 

It is not only Scots abroad who enjoy a sprig of something that actually grew 
at hame. The Glasgow ' Evening Times,' while the above acknowledgment was on the 
ocean, printed the following ; — " Flower girls in Argyle Street are making brave dis- 
play with the mimosa, which comes to us from the Continent hefore the swallows or 
even the daffodils dare. It is one of the indications, after the shortest day, that 
somewhere the sun is shining, and that winter is waning. Australians in town are 
greatly cheered by the golden glory, for the mimosa is the wattle of their homeland, 
carrying with it the same significance as the heather to a Scot abroad." 

Colonials and others on holiday in this country, have thanked us personally for 
sending them souvenirs of Scotland when far away; and others have reciprocated by 
sending preserved leaves and flowers from their distant lands. 

The exchange of national floral emblems will yet become exceedingly popular. 
Botanical Specimens go through the post at letter, sample or parcel rates.

E S PE R ANTO. 

THIS highly commended, tested, living and very- 
successful International Language has now got 
a firm hold on human life and work in every civi- 
lised country. 

Several attempts had been made by far-seeing 
and eminent persons in many lands — including Scot- 
land, — to surmount the lingual barriers, with the 
view of facilitating mutual intercourse and promoting 
peace and goodwill throughout the whole world, but 
none has triumphed except Esperanto — which does 
not seek to interfere with the working of other 
languages, but is just an easy method by which 
each person can communicate with all others who 
also desire perfect mutual understanding in regard 
to any subject. 

To enjoy this modern miracle it is but necesary 
to read (in any language desired) some ol the won- 
derful testimonies of persons engaged in business, 
science or pleasure to learn of its immense benefits. 

To be without Esperanto is to be like those icho 
prefer to work in obscurity, or the ships (if there 
are any outside canal boats) where the code of 
International Signals at Sea is ignored. 

Esperanto has come to stay, and, like the rain 
and sunshine, is for the benefit of everybody. 

N.B. — There still appears to be a belief in some quarters that 

this extraordinarily-useful language is only a fad of lingual 

enthusiasts (!) It has won admiration and success wherever 

adopted. Though "Belega Skotlando" and " Skotlanda 

Pejzago " are enjoyed throughout the civilized world, they 

are favourites among the hundreds of Esperanto groupoj in 

the British Isles and Empire, who delight in circulating the- 

" key " language of universal peace and good-will. 

P. S.— At the Annual Congress of the British Esperanto Association, held at 
Cheltenham in April, 1927, Mr George Higgie. Rothesay, was unanimously 
elected an Honorary Fellow for his pioneer work.

SPELING REFORM 



THIS IS NOT A NEW DESIRE ; BUT BESPEAKS 
A GEEATLY INCREASED INTEREST IN A 
VERY IMPORTANT SUBJECT AT THE PRESENT 
TIME. Under the appropriate heading, 

44 A Wasted Year," 

there appeared, on 3rd May, 1924, a Special Article in the 
Evening Citizen, Glasgow, showing that this is the time lost 
in the life of every child in Britain while acquiring the ir- 
regular and inconsistent spelling of our language. 

The Simplified Speling Society is promoting a 
petition to present to the Prime Minister, calling for the 
appointment of a Royal. Commission — including Scholars, 
Teachers, Men of Letters and Men of Business — to consider 
the whole question, and report. 

Experiments already made by enthusiasts have proved 
eminently satisfactory, and shows how much valuable time 
will be saved for other studies by the removal of the speling 
incubus. 

The Speling Reformers include all classes of the people, 
and the question is not a party one. 

The Simplified Speling Society of Great Britain, and 
the Speling Reform Association of U. S. A., have issued 
the first number of a joint quarterly journal, " Speling." 

Shorthand could not be written without a Reformed and Phonetic Alphabet.

a) Typical letter received in pre-war days ; — 

g Montreal, July 29th, 1913. ' 

■g "I was sh own a copy of your publication, 'Bonnie Scotland's Resorts, - 

g^ while up country, and am desirous of possessing a few of those interest 

*~ ing books ; so realistically depicting places I have visited, and ' brithe r 

a Scots. ' . Kindly inform me if such can be procured in this country o r 

.2 U.S. A , and, if so, where? I would not mind going 500 or 600 miles to 

"§ get a few of your small books— so full of interest to the fellow Scotsmen 

.2 I come in contact with here. . . The party who showed me theircop y 

3 had it for years I shall be glad if you let me know if you issue othe r 
a Publications along the same lines as the ABC Resorts of Scotland.' " 
Messrs Higgie & Co., Rothesay. 

,2 We are now preparing a post-war edition. 

o 

so These Publications are appreciated by intelligent persons outside 

?Jj Scottieh connection, and we sent (free and direct) from our head 

g office, in Rothesay, copies of Bonnie Scotland's Resorts, &o., 

5 to the Red Cross Hospitals in Scotland, 

ja giving a welcome to the brave Sailors and Soldiers who had been 

« fighting in the Great War for Peace on Earth and Good Will to 

£ Men, and we received many thanks for our consideration. 

$ One never knows the goo'd received in unexpected quarters. A 

.2 Scottish soldier, while in an Egyptian hospital, "swapped" 

§ something with a fellow patient for a booklet on Pitman's Short- 

o hand. He learned the art, introduced it into the British Army, 

° and presided at the Glasgow celebration of the inventor's centen- 

-c ary— when he indicated the wonderful success of his innovation.

THE BUTE COUNTY DIRECTORY 

This Directory now-a-days contains the information dis- 
tinctive of both the Directory aad the Almanac of past 
years. The Bute Directory, although very useful to the 
fluctuating visiting population, is not necessarily a fine- 
weather publication, but a hardy permanent annual. 

Our aim, in this publication, is not to record the passing names 
and achievements of visitors and those who come to cater 
foi them, but something of far greater importance— the 
registering of the names, standing, and businesses of the 
resident population — for the information of all having an 
interest in Buteshire, its burghs and rural districts. 

The Directory is, of course, not only for the remaining por- 
tion of the year in which it is issued, but continues the 
only printed reference book for the county of Bute until 
its successor appears. 

One edition of the Directory is no sooner off than we begin to 
note alterations (and prepare for possible additions) for 
the next — so that it may be thoroughly up to date. These 
alterations and probable additions lie at our office, and are 
at the service of our customers. 

Will Secretaries of societies, etc., connected with Buteshire, 
who do not already do so, please remember to forward 
to us particulars of their institutions, annual reports 
and lists of office-bearers, as information for the next 
issue 1 

This Directory is not only found all over Buteshire, but in the 
libraries and other places of public resort in "the adjacent 
islands of Great Britain and Ireland." 

Price to Subscribers, Two Shillings ; to Non-Subscribers, 
Three Shillings. Postage, Threepence. 

Advertisement Tariff on application.

BUTE COUNTY DIRECTORY ADVERTISEMENT. 



The Bute County Directory 

is the only Publication of the kind printed and 
published in Buteshire. Its data is carefully 
compiled, and much time and attention is devoted 
each year to the careful investigation and noting 
of the necessary alterations in the personnel ©f the 
occupants of public offices, the correct addresses 
of the general inhabitants, and the latest changes 
amongst those engaged in business. 

The earliest publications connected with .Rothe- 
say were Directories, and they are interesting 
reading even at this time of day. 

Our publication not only includes the Burgh of 
Rothesay (where it has long been most appreciated, 
but embraces the whole of the County of Bute — 
from the outlying districts of which more interest 
is respectfully solicited. 

Owing to the increased prices of material and 
wages, we have been compelled to raise our tariff 
from pre-war issue, but that advance is not nearly 
equal to the increased cost of production : We de- 
sire not the curtailing of our information, but the 
continuing of everything as full as possible.

BUTE COUNTY DIRECTORY. 



The Commercial Library, 21 Miller Street, 
18th July, 1918. 
Meseu Higgie & Co., Publishers, Rothesay. 

We have to thank you for the copy of the Bute County Directory, addressed to 
the Stirling Library. Since November, 1916, all Directories have been transferred to 
The COMMERCIAL LIBRARY, 21 Miller Street. This library has been established 
for the use of business men, and. as since its opening, we have had over 49,000 visit 
ors, more than one-third of whom consulted the Directories, you will appreciate the- 
publicity your Directory obtains. 

Yours faithfully, 

Jno Phillifs, Libraiian. 



This Directory came out regularly during the stren- 
ous years of the Great War. 

We are striving to keep the lists as full as ever during 
the present time ol industrial depression. Being optim- 
ists, we believe the best is yet to be. 

The Opinions of the Press on the latter issues are 
as complimentary as formerly. 



The "ca' canny" and similar anti-British tactics are paralysing progress and pre- 
venting prosperity. Unless there is a determined rivival of Industry, what must 
the harvest be? It is not through the guile and covetous selfishness of the wicked 
and thoughtlest, but through righteous Regeneration that peace and prosperity 
will be regained. 

People are willing to spend money on Holidays as, well as on Business, but the 
blight of strikes, love of idleness and dreams of getting something for nothing, are 
up in opposition . 

The Revival of the Touring Season. 

The following sample enquiry letter was received after the War was over: — 

Sandown Station Road, Stechford, Birmingham, 12th June, 1919. 
Messrs Higgie & Co., ABC COAST GUIDE, &c. 
I shall be much obliged if you kindly send me names of any apartments you can 
recommend at Craigmore, Wemyss Bay, Millport, Craigendoran, and Tarber' * My 
Guide is 1904. Thanking you in anticipation, yours faithfully, Wm. T. Jones.

The above shoxus the Pleasures the public are again longing for but not engoying to 

the full because of the " ca' canny " policy and the charm of living" of the rates. 
The callous numbining of Busy Hives of Industry throughaut the country is ruinous. 
Charity is a splendid virtue, but it should not not be allowed to encourage pauperism.

Esperanto, like English, is made up from oiher languages: its roots are taken 
from the same jungle, but scientifically treated in a garden pro bono publico, 

The 1 1th Annual International Congress was to have been held in Edinburgh in 
1916, bui the Great War, which prevented the holding the 10th in Paris the previous 
year, was the means of caueing the transfer of the 11th to San Francisco. To com- 
memorate the opening of the Panama Canal a big Exhibition was held there, and a Tri'a 
Pacifika Esperanto Kongreso developed into the 11a Tuta Mondo Esperanto Kongre s«. 
The 12th Kongreso Internacia was held at th Hague, Holland in 1920; the 
13th at Prague, in 1921; the 14th at Helsingfors, Finland, in 1922; the 15th at 
Niirnbergin 1923, the 16th at Vienna in 1U24, the 17th the following August again at 
Geneva ; and the 18th at Edinburgh, in 1926 (when the Holy Bible, in 
Esperanto, was dedicated in St Giles' Cathedral). An official photograph of the vast 
assemblaga hangs in our office at Rothesay. 

Esperanto— the language of Peace on Earth and universal brotherhood — is steadily 
spreading. It is much easier to learn and comprehend tban any national language, and 
does the work 6f all. On the Continent during the Great War it was an incalculable 
blessing to Red Cross work and tracing the missing. It was a veritable open sesame 
into everything good. The world-wide Boy iScout movement has taken up the study 
of la kara lingvo. It was used at the great international Jamboree in London— a 
meeting so happy and harmonious that it was appropriately olosed by the singing of 
"Auld Langsyne." 

Esperanto has been adopted by the League of Nations, League of Religions, and 
numerous business firms, tourist organisations and scientific societies everywhere 
It is, of course, regularly broadcast by wireless. 

By an enthusiast who, by his devoted pioneer work for the cause, 

was elected an Honorary Fellow of the British Esperanto Association
